10 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Dog

zackw 2 years ago
  1. Dogs can be right or left handed just like humans.
  2. Dogs’ nose prints are just as unique as a human fingerprint and can be used to identify them. Since 1938, the Canadian Kennel Club has been using nose prints as proof of identity. 
  3. A dog can hear sounds 4x farther than a human can. 
  4. The human nose averages 5 million scent receptors while a dog nose can average 250 million or more. 
  5. Dogs are as smart as a two year old child. They can both recognize around 150 words.
  6. Dogs sweat out of their paws. However, their main way of regulating temperature is by panting. 
  7. Dog paws smell like chips. This happens due to a build up of sweat and bacteria causing the phenomenon known as “frito feet.” 
  8. Dogs share a common ancestor with wolves, bears, and raccoons. The animal was called Miacis, and was a weasel-like creature that existed roughly 40 million years ago. 
  9. Puppies are born deaf, blind, and toothless.
  10. Dog urine can corrode metals. Some lampposts in Croatia have actually collapsed due to too many dogs urinating on them.
